Aiki Peace Week Class 9-21-10 at Aikido of Berkeley
We also believe this celebration transcends the divisions of different schools, styles, and organizations, and that our collective action will make each of our efforts far more newsworthy than they would be in isolation. Embodying this "training across borders," Aiki Extensions, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the application of Aiki principles in situations outside the dojo, is organizing International Aiki Peace Week. A map of participating dojos around the world illustrates the sheer quantity of communities that are sharing Aikido’s peacemaking message.
We invite you to join us. All you have to do is contact us to join peace-focused Aikido classes during Aiki Peace Week Sept 20-26 http://www.aikipeaceweek.org/.
On September 21st, we will offer a special class for the general public (no prior experience required) that teaches Aiki principles as a way of managing conflict and preventing violence. The class will be followed by a community potluck and celebration which you are invited to attend.
Please come celebrate with us the real practice of peace in our time. Aikido of Berkeley - firstname.lastname@example.org 1352 S 49th St. Richmond, CA 94804. Please come at 6pm to sign-in and change into clothes in which you can move easily. Class will be from 6:30-8:15ish.

In January, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations can spend unlimited $$ in our elections. In July, Target gave $150,000 to the anti-gay, anti-worker candidate for Gov. of MN. During the first week of August alone, a quarter million people pledged to boycott Target.
